Intellectual property is at the heart of innovation. Every day entrepreneurs, engineers, inventors, and designers are imagining the products and platforms that will shape our lives. As a student in Maryland Carey Law’s Intellectual Property Law Program, you will delve into patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, which together make up the legal foundation that protects new ideas from inception to execution, and beyond.
